QWO Cellulite Injectable

Did you know that 90% of women will develop cellulite?

It’s true. Cellulite is common and perfectly natural, and it has nothing to do with your overall health or lifestyle. Cellulite just happens.

That being said, if you’re feeling self-conscious about your cellulite and want to reduce its appearance, our aesthetic injection specialists at Skin by Lovely in Santa Monica, CA, and Portland and Lake Oswego, OR, offer QWO Consultations to determine if you’re a candidate for treatment!

QWO is the first and only FDA-approved injectable to treat cellulite in the buttocks. QWO is much like a facial filler to plump up the lips or cheeks, but this one smooths out your other cheeks. *wink*

The injectable works by:

  1. Breaking up the fibrous bands that cause cellulite beneath the skin
  2. Redistributing fat cells in the area
  3. Stimulating collagen production to improve skin firmness and fullness

Essentially, QWO addresses all of the reasons cellulite occurs, offering long-term results in as little as 10 weeks!

QWO is the first and only FDA-approved injectable for the treatment of moderate to severe cellulite in the buttocks of adult women. It is a non-surgical treatment performed at Skin by Lovely and the actual injections take about 10 minutes or less.

QWO is made from enzymes called collagenases. These enzymes are thought to target the structural causes under the skin, where cellulite starts. It’s thought that QWO works by releasing fibrous bands, redistributing fat cells, and stimulating the growth of new collagen.

Endo Aesthetics, the makers of QWO, conducted the largest clinical trials in the history of cellulite investigation to help determine the safety and efficacy of QWO. These two identical trials enrolled 845 women in the United States, aged 18 or older, with moderate to severe cellulite in the buttocks. It was studied on all skin types and ethnicities.

The amount of treatments you need will vary depending on your desired outcome, but patients will typically receive three treatments over the course of two months.

Cellulite is a localized alteration in the contour of the skin that has been reported in approximately 90% of adult women of all races and ethnicities.

Over time. three completely normal things can happen. Fat cells get larger, skin gets thinner and a little looser and the fibrous bands under the skin’s surface get thicker, leading to a dimpled appearance.

Women are more likely to have cellulite than men, and it affects women of all shapes, sizes, ages and races.

Men have thicker skin than women do, and their collagen bands are oriented in a crisscross fashion, essentially eliminating the ability of the fat lobules to bulge through.

Fat is not cellulite and does not cause it, but fat cells getting bigger between fibrous bands under the skin can contribute to a bumpy appearance.

Before and after results are between day 1 and day 71 (28 days after final injection).

Real Patient Review

There is no better place in LA to get injections. The entire staff at Lovely’s is kind, professional, and talented. I have seen several injectors here and each time I am amazed by how talented they are! I have had Botox and fillers for the past 15 years, and once I found the team at Skin by Lovely, I knew I had found the best. They are actual artists. They look at the entire face, top to bottom, and determine what is best. I look better know than I did in my 20s! Also, I recently had Kybella, and I cannot wait for the results! It’s already looking great just a few weeks in! xo
